- User ID – Alphanumeric identifier of a database or CRM. It must never include a text string that allows to identify a user: email, username, etc.
- Hashed or encrypted personal information - Google Analytics requires an SHA256 hash and recommends using a salt (random value that converts the one-way encryption process) of at least 8 characters.
- Transaction IDs – A transaction ID helps us to access any personal information of the person or company that made it.
